FOOD AND WATER BROILER WAREHOUSE:

This shed is equipped with three silos with a capacity of seventeen tonnes. The feed is distributed via four 132-metre long feed lines with Chore-Time plates. As water is just as important as feed, five lines of Lubing drinking troughs of the same length have been installed.

LIGHTING IN THE CHICKEN SHED:

Lighting is a very important factor in the life of the chick, as good lighting has a positive effect on animal welfare. This is why we have equipped this house with CORAX lamps from Hato. This lamp increases the vision and performance of the birds. In conclusion, the welfare of the chicks is significantly improved. In addition, it has a service life of up to 50,000 hours with low replacement costs.

In addition, we would like to introduce you to its owner, ANTONIO GARCÍA, one of those 1,652 young people who have already taken up farming work in the year two thousand and twenty, whether in agriculture or livestock, according to data from the Junta de Castilla y León.

Interview with Antonio:

Question. Tell us, so that we can get to know you a bit Antonio, how old are you and what do you do for a living?

Answer. I am 23 years old and I work in the family agricultural business after finishing my studies in “Agricultural Production”.

Q. How did you become curious or interested in the world of livestock farming when you were so young?

A. Ever since I was a child I have loved animals. I always wanted to get into animal husbandry and have my own farm. After a lot of hard work, here it is.

Q. Why did you and your family decide to go into the poultry sector, especially in the world of chickens?

A. We opted for chickens in order to have a complementary activity to agriculture, as broilers are easier to handle. Moreover, thanks to the fact that the houses are becoming more and more computerised, this process is much simpler.

Q. Why did you choose Aviporc and especially Llave en Mano?

A. For the experience that Aviporc has in the livestock and farm equipment world – and in my case in the poultry sector – and for the professionalism, trust and facilities that the Turnkey department provided me with.

Q. Tell us a little about your ship (dimensions, capacity, etc.).

A. The shed is 135×16 metres plus technical rooms. It is a combitunel ventilation house and is equipped with herd lights, chore-time feeders, lubing drinkers, munters fans and efizone gas burners. The capacity is for about 32,000 chickens.

Q. How do you feel before you jump in for the first time and start this adventure?

A. Because I don’t have much experience, I am facing this adventure with concern and at the same time a lot of excitement because I am seeing how something I have always wanted is coming true.
